Carmilla by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu The lady Carmilla gains strange powers at night but is oddly restricted from crossing the threshold of a house.

The Supernatural In Modern English Fiction book

After the convention, Becky remembers that in Chapter 33 of the book Time Is on My Sideit was revealed that Bela gave the Colt not to Lilithbut to her right-hand demon and possible lover Crowleygiving the boys hope that they might retrieve it and use it against Lucifer.

But before they can figure out why a lovesick banshee in an '80s heavy-metal T-shirt is wailing in the bedroom, a far more macabre crime catches their attention. Not far from the house, it's the latest in a line of killings that the brothers soon suspect are based on the creepy stories of legendary writer Edgar Allan Poe.

This Gothic novella comes replete with castles, forests, and outlandish romantically-charged relationships between young women. The Winchester boys are determined to protect locals and shoppers alike, but they never anticipated they'd be fighting a group of killers this vicious, this vindictive, this.

The themes, archetypes, and characterizations of both magic and magic users are described, analyzed, and contextualized.
